Some great football; police everywhere & arrests without charge. My take on a World Cup that was not all joga bonito
The 4th star on their shirt & a squad young enough to earn another. The Germany team that wants to win again in 2018
A few of my pictures of life in Rio de Janeiro, a World Cup city par excellence. Although not without its problems
Big thanks to @jimmygreer & @BetinhoCasas for taking me to the Jacarezinho favela in Rio, & a glimpse of life outside FIFA-approved Brazil
Tchau Brasil. Obrigado por uma boa Copa. Tudo funcionou (inclusive os aeroportos). Espero que gera benefĂ­cios para todos os Brasileiros
My overview on the 2014 World Cup: a beautiful tournament at times, but it hid some ugly truths about Brazil & Fifa
Might use my alternative UK passport to clear Brazil immigration today; the one that spells my name 'RAY WHELAN'. Should be fine
Both @Pitacodogringo & @Fernando_Duarte reporting that TV Globo say Luiz Felipe Scolari has resigned as Brazil manager
My live match report from the World Cup final: Germany 1-0 Argentina. Messi denied by the great German generation
We're finally experiencing some of things the German nation are bad at. 1) Stadium playing German rock music. 2) The players are dancing
Manuel Neuer goes for the one-handed World Cup trophy lift. Strictly for the big guns only. It's 6.175kg with a 13cm diameter base
I wonder if Uli Hoeness and his fellow inmates were allowed to stay up to watch extra-time

Well done, Germany. A country that understands that to be a serious football nation you have to develop your best players. Not buy them
Germany 1-0 Argentina, live World Cup final match report. Goetze wins it late for Germany @Independent
No tears or histrionics for the cameras from Messi. Just that inscrutable face & a stare into the mid-distance. How it should be ...
The most immaculately sculpted eyebrows ever to adorn the face of a World Cup final match-winning goalscorer? #gotze
Budweiser give man of the match to Gotze. They really made sure they got the big football fans when they dished out those corporate tickets
Schweinsteiger lying flat-out to be treated for the cut. His leg twitching impatiently like Robocop slowly coming back to life
Higuain will think of that right-foot shot he dragged wide in the first half tonight, tomorrow & for the rest of his life ...
Three Man City players are on the pitch now, the most for any English club in the World Cup final since West Ham (3) in 1966.

Messi, one of football's great poker faces. Slightly quizzical look, as if he's just walked past someone he thinks he knows from somewhere
Don't think Puyol should be assigned to mark Gisele at corners. She's got about a foot on him
Closing ceremony starting at the Maracana. Be brilliant if Ray Whelan popped out of one of the giant footballs
